Read an Excerpt

The rising popularity of outdoor living, which is about finding new ways to connect our homes to their environments, has paved the way for the outdoor kitchen-and we're not talking about a free-standing grill on the patio (which does have its merit). Today's outdoor kitchen runs the gamut from a simple cook station to a fully appointed outdoor room, but regardless of the design or the budget, the goal is the same: cook outside, eat outside-in short, find any excuse to be outside. But in truth, this book is about much more than kitchens: It's an exploration of how we can combine, through cutting-edge architecture and design, the two fundamental human needs for food and fresh air.
